Safety and Security

06 Nov 2019

Safety and Security Day

On Saturday, November 30 members from Victoria Police will be holding the inaugural Southbank Community Safety and Security Day at the Boyd Community Hub between 9am and 2pm.

Various departments from Victoria Police will be represented including: crime prevention officers, proactive policing operatives, multicultural liaison officer, youth resource officers, proactive policing sergeant, Melbourne Highway Patrol and Southbank Police Station of course!

Victoria Police will be engraving bicycles, handing out one-way screws to protect number plates and promoting personal safety and security across the community.

Bicycle engraving

If your bicycle is lost or stolen, the chances of it being returned are improved if your driver’s licence number is engraved on the frame, and you keep a record of your bicycle details and a photograph of your bicycle. Police will be onsite to engrave your driver’s licence number on the frame of your bicycle. If stolen and recovered police are able to return your bicycle using your licence details.

One-way screws

Over 10,000 number plates are stolen each year in Victoria. These are often used to commit further serious offences such as theft of fuel, avoiding speeding and parking fines, burglaries and drug trafficking. Replacing screws with one-way anti-theft screws can help prevent serious crimes and save yourself the trouble and expense of getting new number plates.

Personal safety and security

This is a great opportunity to engage with Southbank’s crime prevention officers. You can learn about the safety of your personal belongings, vehicles, bicycles and also how to ensure that your home is not targeted by thieves. Police will be on site to answer your questions and provide advice.

Highway Patrol

A representative from the Melbourne Highway Patrol will also be in attendance. Come on down and ask those burning questions about all things traffic.

We look forward to seeing you on November 30.

Station Commander - Southbank Police Station
